  1. Stuffy, Corporate and very political

    Current Employee - Marketing Coordinator in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Marketing Coordinator in New York, NY

    I have been working at Forest Labs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are mostly friendly, and smart.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't seem to care about the day to day as much. People will report you to HR if you look at them funny or make a joke about the weather.

    Pros

    Great management that was fair and skilled at employee development. Talented reps and healthy culture.

    Cons

    Probably industry wide. Admins run company and many decisions without any clue about what is happening in the field. Bad targets, poor reporting. Etc...

    Advice to Management

    Great job to all the DMs, RDs, and trainers. Way up the ladder maybe you all need to trust those employees.

    Pros

    Technical resources were excellent; benefits were rewarding; Was satisfied with salary;

    Cons

    Many people were working for too many years 10 - 15 years and were not ready to change for the better. Old school techniques of only copy pasting in excel for critical analyses.

    Advice to Management

    Need intellectual managers to motivate skilled employees; Company should look for skilled labor rather than keeping slow pacers for too long - who wouldn't grow and won't let others grow too !
